Comprada en Labirratorium. Conocíamos la meantime chocolate, que nos gusta mucho. Ésta tiene una bonita apariencia, aséptico filtrado, espuma blanca persistente, un bonito color chocolate. El resto se puede resumir en una palabra, chocolate. Muy empalagosa y desequilibrada, nada que ver con la Meantime Chocolate, que nos gusta mucho. Nada redondeada se queda en una infusión de chocolate. No merece la pena. Probada la IPA, ésta y la cherry de Meantime cada vez nos gusta menos esta cervecera.

Almost black, filmy beige head. Aroma is as promised chocolate, coffee. Medium body. Roasted malt & a little hops in finish. Worth of trying indeed.

Kezdetnek talán írhatnék a nyilvánvaló komponensek, mint a finomra őrölt, porcukros kakaópor, majd meglepően puha étcsokoládé, folyékony vanília, krémes maláta jelenlétéről, mely összetevők egy gömbölyű és olvadós szénsavmolekulákkal megszellőztetett, mértani pontossággal beállított testben foglalják el helyüket. Ha hasonlítgatni szeretném, megemlíthetném továbbá a Double Chocolate Stout nevét, melynek újdonság erejével ható, és lényegében ennek eredményeképpen előálló ízesített sör jellegét e főzetben már felülírja egy klasszikushoz közelítő ital képe egy cseppnyi pikantériával megbolondítva. Ez utóbbit természetesen itt is a valódi csokoládé jelenléte jelenti, melynek eredményeképpen rögtön a visszafogott desszertsörök, mint szubjektív kategória egyik legelegánsabb képviselőjével találjuk magunkat szemben.

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2014 Het is een frissere porter. weinig schuim. Smaak word beter hoe langer je hem laat staan. Lekker voor als je een niet te zoete porter wil

UPDATED: APR 15, 2014 It poured with that typical Porter richness and thick creamy amber head. The aroma hinted of chocolate but was a little masked. Very nice mouthfeel not overtly bitter and the light acidity had almost ctitrus like notes. I think this is where we can make that chocolate comparison. I should mention the temperature might have been a bit too chilled but it worked. Even though it’s a rich beer it was still very refreshing. I’d stock this because it will appeal to a wide range of people.

Koskela (290) - Marysville, California, USA - JAN 2, 2014
A slight chocolate aroma come with this deep brown clear brew with no head at all. No bueno. Sot too sweet and not to bitter. Not very carbonated. Choc aftertaste and medium bodied. Tastes more like a choc coke than a porter. Try it. Rate it. Prolly not a good 6 pack

Pours a dark beer with a nice beige head. Smells chocolaty and malty. Tastes really chocolaty and a bit bitter. Has a light sweet after taste. And even a bit of vanilla aroma. I really dig the taste. I for sure will buy this again.
